We’re So in Love With Esther the Wonder Pig | She Really is Everything!

Meet Esther the Wonder Pig. I would do just about anything to be able to go visit and interview her!

Esther’d dads had this to say about her:

Esther is a pig, that’s really all we know since she was misrepresented as a “micro-pig”. She was born in Summer of 2012 to what we believe was a commercial farm litter. She was somehow removed, perhaps because she was a runt?, and she found her way to us.

We hope this page will make you take a minute to re-evaluate some of your daily choices, such as bacon for example. We always seem to prefer the “I’d rather not think about it” approach, but if you took just a few minutes to learn how brutal life is for these loving, intelligent and compassionate animals I know it would change your mind and maybe even convince you to give a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle a chance.

We absolutely DO NOT advise anyone to take on a pig like Esther in their homes. We have made this decision for two reasons. First of all; we were misled regarding what Esther was when we got her. People need to know the potential risks you’re opening yourself up too with a pig. We expected a mini pig, Esther is what we got. Please do plenty of research and consider adoption of your pig if you really feel you are up to being a piggy parent. It is an amazing experience and she has changed our lives in amazing ways however; it was a ton of work.

The second reason we kept her is very simple. This isn’t Esther’s fault, she didn’t ask for the life she was given. We have the chance to provide her with the life she deserves, not the one she was bred for. What kind of people would we be to deny her that? She deserves everything we can ever give her. For Esther and for all the other pigs out there we haven’t been able to save……yet.

If you’re not in love with Esther yet, I wonder about you.
